See depictions of pigs created by Chinese artists within the last 2,000 years including a sixth-century pottery figure of a stout pig in recumbent position and two sets of Chinese zodiac animals, which illustrate both the universal appeal of pigs as a symbol of wealth and the integral role that they played in human life.
